I was in a convenient store not so long ago when we were on a day trip (we stopped to use the restroom) I was a little hungry, so I thought maybe I would check out what MIGHT be someone healthy for me to nibble on.
I was happy to find a basket of fresh fruit, even though it was way over priced. Then my eye caught a refrigerated section that had already made salads, portioned out fruit cups, yogurt, cheeses and I almost gagged "pre-packaged hard boiled, peeled eggs".... really I mean I appreciate the effort but if that is not cooked, stored exactly right, kept at a consistent temperature and closely watched for expiration dates, anyone eating those could become deathly ill. NO THANKYOU!
I get convenience but even with this so called healthy choices are we really providing the nutrients and fuel that our bodies need on a daily basis? I DON'T THINK SO
A very large percentage of people that I talk to are literally starving themselves by definition. Our bodies require a minimum amount of fuel to just simply BE. These unhealthy eating habits on the short term contribute to stress, tiredness and our capacity to work, and over time, it can contribute to the risk of developing some illnesses and other health problems" Is your health at risk, the risks of poor nutrition
You would NEVER put water in your gas tank and expect your car to go very far, so why do we put empty-calorie crap into our bodies and expect that we will be filled with energy to get everything done in a day.
"When you start thinking of food as fuel, you immediately realize how important Shakeology is in your daily diet, especially if you are relying on the convenience factor for at least one meal per day.
Take a look at the ingredient label. What you will find is a shake derived from whey (milk) protein, and PLANTS. Most of these plants are superfoods from around the world, packing in vital nutrients (70 to be exact!). Shakeology is more than a protein shake. It is more than a superfood shake. It is like drinking a multivitamin, packing in what is equivalent to taking SEVEN trips to the salad bar. There are amazing vegan varieties, too"
So what is in it?
-Antioxidants: To promote a healthy heart and optimal blood pressure
-Phytonutrients: Helps alkalinize (fancy term for removing acid build up to beat illness), promote detoxification.
-Adaptogens: Protect from stress and support immune system.
-Pre and Probiotic enzymes: Building and feeding the “Good Guys” in your gut, resulting in effective digestion, and regularity.
What it can do for you?
-Improve your mood. One scoop of Shakeology provides 100% of the daily recommended intake of vitamin B12. B12 is often linked with good mood and positive energy maintenance.
-Aid in detoxification. Many of the ingredients in Shakeology (spirulina, chlorella, flaxseed, barley grass, spinach) contain powerful detoxification compounds such as chlorophyll and alpha-linolenic acid. These ingredients may help rid the body of environmental toxins such as smog, heavy metals, herbicides, cleaning products, and pesticides. Kamut grass is another detoxifying ingredient known to cleanse the body and detoxify the cells to restore health and vitality.
--Boost immunity. The goji berries in Shakeology are one of the richest sources of antioxidants; not only does goji berry promote eye, reproductive, and circulatory health, but it also supports your immune system and promotes longevity!
--Beat cravings & stay satisfied longer: The protein, chromium, and nutrient-dense calories from superfoods in Shakeology work to help decrease your appetite. Chromium is important because it helps maintain blood-sugar levels, which reduces sugar cravings and promotes fat metabolism. Protein-rich meals are a great way to keep you feeling full, longer, too!
--Complete nutrition: Each Shakeology ingredient plays an important role in fueling your body on a cellular level, but it is important to remember that the synergy of the 70+ ingredients working together is what truly fuels your body to keep you feeling and looking amazing.
Concerned about cost?
Think about this though. Think about the mindless expenses that you create for yourself throughout the week. Snacks, coffee, bottles of water or other beverages. Impulse buys in check out lines like candy bars or energy bars. Do you hit the drive thru or eat out for lunch a few times a week? It adds up quickly!
For me, it was cigarettes and take out lunches, quick runs into the grocery store for meat and walking out spending $50 bucks.
Shakeology on home direct costs $28 per week, which breaks down to about $4 per serving. And it's a meal. Cutting out a few mindless buys throughout the week easily covers the cost of Shakeology, and chances are, it's a much better bang for your buck.
With Shakeology, weight loss and sustained health become a BY-PRODUCT of dense nutrition.
What has Shakeology done for me? It has helped to curb cravings and fuels me energy as I begin my day. It has replaced by daily multivitamin, I am sleeping through the night once again and waking rested, it has improved my skin and nails, it helps to reduce my between meal cravings, honestly, I don't even want the snack foods like chips, ice cream and candy anymore and it is a meal I look forward to EVERY day! It is my go-to meal in the morning during the week when my mornings are crazy, and helps to fill the gap between brunch and dinner on the weekends.
